Another tailgate problem


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Another Newbie question here.

I have a problem with my yr 2000 5-door Freelander. The tailgate window drops when I operate the handle, but the door won't open. Is there any way to get in to the lock mechanism without removing the door? I'm presuming that I can remove the hinge-pins & lift the door off?

Thanks Bog Monster, only problem is I can't figure out how to remove the rear panel while the door is closed. Catch 22?

Regards, Stew

I think you can get to the lock by taking off the interior trim. Not sure about the hinge pins, but I doubt it is as easy as it sounds!

that one sounds tricksy, can scan you the book of lies section for taking off the door trims to get to the locks, i was reading it t'other day cos i need to do the regulator .... which i still havent phoned my supplier for a price on :D

tho the trim removal looks straightforward
